One of the potentially coolest gadgets unveiled at CES 2014 so far is Sony’s virtual reality headset.
Named the HMZ-T3Q (a follow-up to last year’s HMZ-T3W), Sony’s new Oculus Rift competitor is designed primarily for movie fans and gamers, and offers a virtual screen reaching up to 750 inches.
The idea is that the portable headset could replace smartphones, tablets and laptops in certain entertainment settings — with the added benefit of privacy.
“The head-mounted display is a theater on your head,” noted Michael Fasulo, Sony Electronics’ president and COO during his CES keynote speech.
The headset is also aware of users’ movements — a definite positive for gaming — so when users turn their heads it can focus in on that particular scene.
